Spotify Web Player should be one of the most popular websites in the world, giving you access to the musical cosmos of Spotify without having to download anything to your PC. It’s kind of brilliant, but also terribly imperfect, with many people reporting that it doesn’t work well or not at all on different browsers. As a result, we have created a guide that explains the most common reasons why Spotify Web Player may not work.
Direct loading of the track
Sometimes, the web player can cause a malfunction during the website loading process. A simple solution is to try to load the song you want to play by inserting the link directly into the browser. Therefore, in this step, we will copy and paste the link of the song to open it directly.
- Open the browser and start the webplayer service.
- Navigate to the track you want to play and click on the three dots in front of the song and select “Copy title link”.
- Paste this link into the address bar of your browser and press Enter.
- Once the page is loaded, try playing the song and see if the problem persists.
Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
If you want to check if Spotify Web Player does not play, whether it is linked to the Internet connection or not, you can try to start another site. If the site does not start, it is probably because you are connected to a network. You can try restarting the router to see if it can be repaired in a few minutes. If this still doesn’t work, you can ask your Internet service provider for help and report your situation so that they can resolve your problem as quickly as possible.
Delete the cache file from your browser.
Spotify caches files to speed up playback, so that the computer also caches web pages or other useful data to speed them up the next time the page is loaded. But sometimes, it can cache the wrong data and prevent the page from opening. It is recommended to delete the cache file or update the DNS on your computer. After that, your unloaded Spotify Web Player will be repaired.
Flush the DNS from your computer.
Most computers offer a better Internet service by caching the addresses and web elements of frequently visited websites. This allows our Internet to be artificially faster, regardless of the actual connection speed. However, computers can occasionally cache bad data that slows or disrupts online activity. “Flushing the DNS” (Domain Name System) can remove such obstacles and allow you to go back to what you did (in this case Spotify!) Here is a detailed guide to cleaning the DNS on current Mac and Windows operating systems.
Now you can freely listen to Spotify files on all devices and media players and you no longer have to worry about Spotify Web Player no longer working. But if you want to make better use of Spotify Web Player and you are still having problems, please leave your problems in the commentary and we will suggest a possible solution.
